Chanel Lilas d'Or (808) is a slightly warm-toned, light pink with a pearl finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $36.00 and contains 0.14 oz.
Chanel Lilas d'Or (808) Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a soft, light-medium pink with subtle, cooler undertones and warmer, golden pearl. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was only buildable to medium coverage, but it seemed creamier than other shades, so it was also more forgiving during application as it took a bit longer to dry down. I had more time to work with it, and it seemed more blendable in practice as a result. I could see it working best as a one-and-done lid color or as an eyeshadow base. It wore well for 14 hours, and even at that point, it did not look any different.
Chanel describes the formula as a "smooth-textured cream shadow [that] glides on effortlessly" and is "long-wearing." There are eight shades (view swatches) released with one (Obscur) being limited edition. Overall, the consistency has moderate slip--emollient but not greasy or overly wet in feel--and feels more like a traditional cream eyeshadow than Chanel's Illusion d'Ombres. They go on as a thin layer but have fairly good pigmentation. The formula dried down quite quickly leaving little time for blending or diffusing edges, even when working one eye at a time, which was where I struggled. I think some of them tended to work better as lid colors and using something else for a more diffused/blended out crease color. They did, however, wear impeccably for as long as fourteen hours on me--no creasing, fading, or flaking.
